Hull beats Middlesbrough 4-2, out of EPL relegation zone

Middlesbrough, who have a game in hand on 17th-placed Hull, are without a win in their last 13 league games and Agnew admitted his side will likely need to defy the odds if they hope to maintain their top flight status next season.

A remarkable evening at the KCOM stadium saw Hull take a 3-2 lead into half time, after going 1-0 down thanks to a goal from Alvaro Negredo.

The Tigers have now taken 16 points from a possible 18 in their last six home league games to give their survival battle real momentum and Silva said his side's display was their best since he took charge in January.

Middlesbrough's Marten De Roon got one back just before half time, but Harry Maguire headed Hull's fourth midway through the second period.

Hernandez set up Senegalese global Oumar Niasse before scoring himself with Serbian worldwide Lazar Markovic also getting on the scoresheet and Harry Maguire adding a fourth in the second-half.

Hull thought they had drawn first blood, but Niasse was deemed offside when he turned the ball home at the end of a slick move in the third minute and the first blow was landed by Boro two minutes later.

First, Lazar Markovic, a threat all night, pounced to fire in the equaliser from close range after Abel Hernandez had been unable to convert a deflected looping cross from Andrew Robertson. We scored one more goal [in the second half] to make us more comfortable in the game.

Alfred N'Diaye hooked the ball forward and Hernandez's headed pass fell invitingly to Niasse, who buried his shot under Boro goalkeeper Victor Valdes from 12 yards.

But Boro refused to surrender.

Boro reduced the deficit in first-half stoppage time in controversial circumstances.

There was initial confusion over whether the goal had been given as referee Michael Oliver went to consult with the linesman.

Boro were stunned and needed some invention to get back in the game and Rudy Gestede almost provided that but he saw his header tipped onto the crossbar by keeper Eldin Jakupovic.

A free kick from left was beautifully delivered to the far post by Robertson and Maguire produced a wonderful header back across Valdes and into the far corner of the net.
